Why ‘soon to get married’ couples should consider premarital coaching?

Published on March 20, 2017

Premarital coaching is a type of session that supports the 'soon to get married' couples to get well prepared for the challenges that married life can throw at them over the period of time. The sessions are conducted by expert relationship counsellors who prepare the couples for a stable and satisfying marriage.

According to Shivani Misri Sadhoo, through premarital coaching, couples learns commitment towards each other and most importantly they learn commitments towards their marriage. In brief, the advantage of premarital counselling are:- 

1. Couples can talk about a problem before it’s too late

Premarital coaching is a chance for couples to dig up any potential dangers that can weaken their marriage from lasting a lifetime. Relationship Counsellor Shivani tells us that it does not matter how charismatic a man or woman is. It takes trained and experienced eyes to identify if the person holds immature beliefs and values concerning money, child-raising, in-laws, partnership, etc.

Hence relationship counsellor/coach can help an individual get any potential issues out in the open (effectively) NOW so that their partner does not get a shock after a couple of years into their marriage.

2 Premarital coaching/counselling can strengthen the bond between partners.

Let us accept that most of us are not born with amazing communication skills. In a marriage, effective communication is required not from one but both the partners. Healthy relationships are based on open and honest communication and premarital counselling can help partners to learn effective communication skills.

3. Get an expert perspective on relationships

Going to a premarital counsellor/coach can give couples a neutral perspective on their relationship and they get to know from the right person on how to make their marriage last.
